The atmosphere was amazing, almost feeling like we were in Italy. The service was fantastic, welcoming, and attentive. We ordered the aranchini, which were delicious -- probably our favorite dish of the meal; however, none of our other meals wowed us. Considering the price and esteem of Palma, we were disappointed. The bombolini did not come out super hot, making us to believe that they were not made to order and were just heated up. They lacked flavor, and the crispy crunch that we were craving. Overall, we enjoyed the food and experience; however, the taste of the food did not match with the price.

Palma never disappoints. There’s something so magical about this place. The food and wine selections are so amazing which makes it difficult to choose but keeps us coming back. The staff is exceptional. Everyone is so personable and helpful. The scent of roses throughout the restaurant is truly the icing on the cake! And Marco - so thoughtful and kind! You made our night!

Palma came as a family recommendation, and my girlfriend and I were blown away. The moment you open the door, you are walking into Italy. The ambiance and decor are so thoughtful and cozy. String lights, plants, candles, chipped natural stained tables, and chairs. The atmosphere was only to be outshined by the food and service, attentive and thoughtful waitstaff and the handmade pasta and ingredients were as fresh as can be. I will be back the very day I visit NYC next.

I was so excited to try Palma out. The place is adorable. Cocktails were great, quite pricey and our Arancini was great. Both of our pastas were incredibly bland and our server did not once come over to ask how they were. Very dissapointed all in all. Would recommend this as a cocktail + lite bite spot versus somewhere to go for a full meal.

My second experience with Palma. Was just as great as the first time over two years ago. Wine recommendations were perfect with my meal. Everything that was shared between the group of us 4 was amazing. I recommend everyone try the calamari, carciofi, and most certainly the fettuccine ai funghi!

I have had Palma's restaurant on my list of places to go since last year. Finally, for my birthday, I made the trip into NYC. It was worth the wait. The staff was warm and welcoming. The service was perfect, very attentive, very helpful when asking about the menu and very friendly. Our waiter spoke to us in Italian which was awesome. The restaurant is prettily decorated with fresh flowers everywhere!!!! It's a great place to go with your girlfriends, your partner, even by yourself.

The food was incredible. Homemade pasta was perfectly cooked. We had ravioli caccio e pepe and angiolotti with spinach and ricotta, both highly recommended. I cannot say enough about this place. I would definitely go back.

The icing on the cake was meeting the owners! What a beautiful couple ! They took the time to chat with us and it was just a pleasure meeting them.

It was our second time in a week dining at this fabulous Italian restaurant as we moved our son into his new apartment on Cornelia Street - last week outdoor dining and this week for the first time indoors in months now that NYC is opening for indoor dining. Food both times was outstanding - fresh, homemade pasta both visits. Everything from the meatballs and Arancinj risotto balls to the entrees and desserts were delicious. And the indoor dining surrounded by flower, private rooms and glass covered garden room was beautiful. Thank you to Robert and Pietro for making us feel like we were family at Palmas !
